've seen -- what was it, the bruin london pack is deepening. so in some ways, it seems as though it's deepening. just a bit of news here following the discussion we had with stephane just a few minutes ago. the french finance ministry is now saying the state is not -- it's taking a stake in peugeot. it's not on the agenda. peugeot shares are down about 2% currently on the cac 40. it says an asset write-down doesn't mean it needs a capital boost, that the write-down doesn't affect its solvability or liquidity and that the probabilities pursue a recovery plan. all of this coming out of the french government is ironic in the first place. now you can see shares falling almost 275%, ross. clearly there is some hope that there would be a benefit here or help from the government without necessarily nationalizing, but they say their priority is to strengthen the gm alliance. we'll keep an eye on gm shares and see if they want to move it along. >> so no stake at the moment, according to french government. meanwhile, the world's fastest main, usain bolt could be ready to end his uk competitio
